Hey everybody, I got three drawings accepted into my first New York art show! The painting above, titled "Masks", is one of the three pieces. I created this in Atlanta before moving here, but my new friend, Jason, thinks this piece is ALL New York. I guess he would know. He's been here 10 (12?) years. Once a Parson's fashion student, he's now head designer for 2xist Men's Underwear! Not bad for someone who's just over thirty – he's completely living the Project Runway lifestyle! Not only that, but he's a super nice guy, too. It must be interesting designing Men's underwear for a living...maybe I can convince him to buy this piece!
Getting back to the topic at hand, check out the official event info. The show is titled "Shady Characters", and you can read more about it here: Good Deal. The curator, Jared Deal, was gracious enough to allow me to submit work, which he added to the exhibit! Several big names in the animation industry from NY, LA, and Toronto are included in the show, so come on out and show your support! The opening reception is Friday, July 28th, from 6 to 9 pm at the "Live with Animals" gallery in Williamsburg. Hope to see ya there!
